J.R.R. Tokien is an author firmly embedded in the hearts of New Zealanders, thanks of course to the Lord of The Rings.

Now, his life story is being told in the aptly named new movie: Tolkien.

Playing the man himself is Nicholas Hoult, an actor whose first foray into major acting roles in 'About a Boy with Hugh Grant' and more recently starred in 'Skins' and 'X-Men'.

He joins Saturday Morning with Jack Tame to discuss his career and featuring in the new movie.
